The Laguna Honda Hospital Replacement Program includes the construction and renovation of three campuses: the South Residence Building, the Link Building, and the East Residence Building. Together, they will accommodate 780 beds and it will be the first green hospital to  implement sustainable features in its design, construction, and operations. The goal is to meet a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Certified rating under the U.S. Green Building Council.  

The new campus will feature: physical therapy as well as occupational therapy, a therapy pool, fitness room, beauty/barber shop, gift shop, multi-purpose room, Dental, Vision and Dialysis clinics in addition to 60 beds dedicated to rehabilitation (both acute care and skilled nursing).  Residents and visitors will also benefit from a farm/greenhouse; orchard; an amphitheater; landscaped grounds; and tree alley which will provide site accessibility from the street level to the hospital grounds. Improvements are also slated for the chapel, auditorium, and loading dock in addition to the construction of new offices to accommodate the administrative, nursing, and services staff. 

The Department of Public Works is responsible for delivering this major capital improvement project on behalf of the Department of Public Health.
